Alliance returns Friday, October 5

What a good way to start our 2018-19 Alliance year. Remember to bring dues $25.00 for the new year, and also snacks for all to enjoy. The program committee has met and mapped out great programs for the year. Join us in Parish Hall on the first Friday of each month from October to June for a stimulating presentation and the tea which follows. All are welcome: USSB congregants, friends, neighbors, men and women of all ages. Your contribution of some goodies to share makes our tea a delicious afternoon treat.
